Wow! I haven't seen a Norelco 100w MV lamp yet!

This must be a re-branded lamp made at Westinghouse's HID lamp factory (nice, nonetheless). 100 W mercury lamps of the "pure" Philips/Norelco design were actually made with an elliptical bulb, not a bulged-tubular one. Moreover, in 1985 Philips had already transferred (or closed) all its former Norelco HID lamp production from Hightstown, NJ, to Westinghouse's Bath, NJ, factory.

Do you have a picture of the lamp stamp, Colin?

I didn't know Norelco made metal halides...

That's the latest Norelco branded lamp I've seen. Philips changed their name to Philips Westinghouse after they purchased the latter in February, 1983. Philips said they were going to use the Norelco name on their shavers.

Preheat and T-12 fluorescents forever! Down with LED's and instant start T-8 fluorescents.

Hmm I didn't know they used the Norelco name on lamps after the Westinghouse buyout! Cool lamp!

Normally they stopped using the Norelco brand on lamps after 1983, so I'm very curious to see the actual stamp on this lamp, especially the factory symbol. Without this, I'll still think this is just a Philips branded lamp in a Norelco package.

It certainly looks like a Westinghouse (Philips) design. All the Norelco lamps I've seen have been ED shape with the spring around the dimple holding the arc tube frame.

And another thing, I noticed this lamp is from 1985. Unsure when Philips switched to ED23.5, but I have a few cases of Philips 100W MV Lifeguard lamps from July 1985 and they are all ED23.5.

Sailormoon, do you have a shot of the etch on this lamp? If so, can you post it? That would be .

Sometimes, if you can fog the bulb up (put it in the freezer to cool off, than take it out and breath on it) you can make out the etch. Cool bulb
